Pediatric Care at SCW

The goal at Scarnecchia Chiropractic and Wellness is to ensure the health and wellness of your child. Growing up in today’s society presents new challenges to raising healthy children. Stress, nutrient-poor food, lack of physical activity, medications prescribed at earlier ages, and dampened immune systems have led to unwanted outcomes. Chiropractic care for children is a great alternative to more invasive treatment options. It is also a great therapy to support and positively influence a growing child.

Treatments Available

Chiropractic Adjusting: A much gentler approach than most people envision. Pediatric adjustments are tailored to the size of the child and their unique condition. The force is similar to the amount of pressure used to check the ripeness of a tomato; very gentle and very comfortable. 

 

Acupressure: The same benefits of acupuncture (see Acupuncture tab) without the use of needles.

 

Nutrition: Diet plays an exceedingly important role in our health as poor nutrition has been linked to chronic disease. We promote a nutritious diet consisting of whole, nutrient-dense, unprocessed foods to support optimal health. 

 

Pediatric Tui Na: Bodywork similar to massage that stems from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It is a combination of acupressure and massage and a great therapy to continue care at home.
